Flores de la llanura (Prairie Flowers)



19 min

After Silvia’s femicide, Yecenia, who is her cousin, and one of the Ñomndaa weavers from the Prairie of Flowers, creates a ritual and poetic mourning alongside other weaving women. Through this ritual, threads, dreams and their craft are collectively woven together as an act of healing and resilience.
